Looks like the Sox will start it off with Lester, Buchholtz, Lackey -
and then Beckett and Dice K as #4 and 5.
they all get to pitch.
this "he's number 1, no HE'S number 1 is really pointless.
Not to mention that Beckett will most likely start game 3, not 4.
This does (thus far) put out in stark relief the failure of the front
office to address this problem. The MFY didn't stand pat, did they?
And didn't they finish ahead of the Sox, was it??? (voice trails
AL pitching BF OI BG AdjOPS

Jenks didnt even make the list! The MFY get the #3 guy to go with
Mariano. Theo gets Jenks.
THEN we get to the Starting Pitching, Problem #2? Theo does
*Nothing*. He has 2 starters in the toughest division. 2. Then it's
THEN we get to the Catching. Perhaps some purists would say this was
the #1 Problem instead of Relief pitching or Starting Pitching. They
let V-Mart walk. This is WORSE than *nothing*. Salted Schrod!
Salted Schrod! Let's give the Inspector General Theo some more of
that Salted Schrod.
They had the BEST 1st baseman in all of 2011 baseball. What do they
do? They get Gonzalez and move Youk to 3rd where he is still probably
good, but just not as good as at 1st. Perhaps the read on Beltre is
Truth and he will will suck now that he has the money again, like he
did before. Theo has to be praying it is so.
They have the aging Cameron & other various whale dreck in the form of
a few very valiant energetic whoopdeedoos at left and now they score
the amazing Carl Crawford. YES. Move Jacoby back to Center where, if
you have correctly assessed he lack of ability, Carl can save the day
coming over to cut off those wall-banging alleys. But mostly back to
where Jacoby flourishes at the plate. Carl is the best left fielder
in the game.
Grades so far: C+ for Jenks. F for Starters. F- for Catchers. B
for the conservation of Adrian count on the team. A+ for Crawford.
Total thus far: D
SO FAR I AM VERY PISSED!!!!
